Welcome to Los Angeles. A dynamic, ever evolving destination that’s set against a backdrop of authenticity, optimism, and the unexpected. We invite you to be a free spirit here, to be different, to be bold, and to have fun. A place where our rich Latinx heritage is part of the city's DNA. Take a stroll through Olvera Street, dance to music at Mariachi Plaza, plan a taco trek with our food map, admire Latinx art, or remember loved ones during Dia de los Muertos festivities. Explore our dynamic cultural hubs, celebrate history, and enjoy the serenity of a stunning sunset. The possibilities in LA are endless.

For Latino Heritage Month events (Sept. 15 - Oct. 15), visit the Department of Cultural Affairs website.
